Engineering Skills: Your Child Has Them!

Ever watch your child solving a problem? Their minds are hard at work engineering solutions!

Helping them brainstorm possible solutions can go a long way towards encouraging their critical and flexible thinking skills, leading to more creative minds.

It's also important to let them know that failure is a natural step. Their failure is just one solution that didn't work and maybe they can change it to find out what does succeed.

Bonus: boost their self-esteem by pointing out the hard work that went into fixing their own problem!
